Add on for CAN-AM (v5.5) mod
Chaparral 2J: The Vacuum Cleaner Car.
The Chaparral 2J, was built by American designer Jim Hall, an oilman from Texas who had a strange mixture of a highly skilled engineer, but was not, and a very good race car driver.
At Chaparral 2J was given the name " vacuum cleaner car" which worked reverse to howercraft, breathing in the air under the car and driving out the air to produce suction effect.
The suction were produced by two 17 inches fans installed at the rear which worked with a snowmobile 45hp twin-cylinder Rockwell engine, also taking the car a channel flexible (skirt that rose and fell according to the irregularity of the track) around the bottom edge that helped secure the track even more.
The Chaparral 2J was driven by a powerful V8 engine Chevrolet 90º and 7600 cc with almost 700 hp and had a semi automatic gearbox with 3 gears.
This system held so tightly to the car that allowed him to track on corners without lifting off the throttle.
Set a record when you turn quickly in a Can-Am race at Watkins Glen, but was banned shortly after taking part in races.
Those who have played GT4 game will have seen virtually the management of this strange car, appreciating its qualities in the early game when car needs a good speed to win some races and unlock other cars that are superior.
Precisely there, Dex's friend handed me the models to see if I could add it to rFactor.
After finishing version 1.2 of the 1983-1984 F1 mod I proceeded to finish this project that I had pending.
It's just an add on for CAN-AM (v5.5) mod.
